Recently a new Paper Mario title was released for the Wii U that looks like a surprisingly fun title. There are a lot of changes to the series as it continues to go down a less RPG type path like it has been for the past few games. This is the first time Paper Mario has made its way onto the Wii U console and one of the last games we will probably see for it seeing as the NX launch is quickly approaching us. The game is having a pretty positive reaction from reviews across the board currently giving the series some much needed positive scores.
This game takes place on Prism Island which is usually quite a pretty place, but as of the start of the game had all its color stolen. It’s of course up to Mario to try and save the island by bringing its color back, and of course, save the princess by the end of the day. This Paper Mario is noted to be a lot less story-heavy than previous games that went into detail with chapters, and some characters. The battle system however is noted to be amazingly fun and much improved from the unpopular last entry in the series “Sticker Star” making the gameplay itself fun to go through.
It’s worth noting that this game is still vastly different from the original two Paper Mario games that had you working alongside typical enemies with heavy dialogue . Most of the inhabitants that are friendly happen to be toads and the game is way more focused on actually playing it than creating a breathing world full of paper diversity. If you are an original fan and can look past this for a bit more then you can definitely have fun with it, otherwise, I would wait to see what the NX has to offer from the series.
